I just discovered William Basinski’s Disentegration Loops and they are magnificent. I am reminded that it is ok to like something, love something, want to own it on a disc you can play all the time, despite the fact that others may not understand. I remember the fetish music was before it was everywhere.

Here’s a #figuredrawing from July, when I was trying out a lot of different papers. I went through a lot of stuff to see if anything would fit in a friend’s group show recently and photographed a lot of stuff I never posted before.

I’m trying to decide whether to sell this copy of Building Stories or try to read it again. The more comics I read the more it seems like Chris Ware makes comics for people who hate comics. His work is always flat for me, although I’ve tried to like it at various points because everyone else seems to so I felt like I was missing something. Like I get his ham fisted emotional moments and his occasional formal innovations, I just get super bored with the work as a whole and find it not very pleasing to look at.

Oddly enough my estimation of Paul Pope’s work has changed significantly in the past few years. I don’t know if it’s because I’m looking at more comics in a more serious way or what, but where Pope’s work felt inaccessible to me before, I now get really jazzed by and love it. All along his style and subject matter have seem like things that should really excite me so I was confused why I never got into it before.
